Consumate marriage


Assalam alaikum.

I don’t remember where I read it but it said that a couple should not consummate the marriage on the day of nikah. kindly enlighten on the subject please.


Waalaykumussalam warahmatullah,

It is perfectly fine to consummate the marriage on the day and the night of the nikah. In some cases the families may choose to delay cohabitation for extraneous practical reasons that are mutually agreed upon. But as for “should not” in absolute terms, it is nonsense.
